Cynthia helped me create a beautiful and functional kitchen remodel in my home in Madison. She got to know my family and our style and also surprised me with some colors and spacial designs I hadn't thought of. She was always on time and got back to my calls and emails right away. She was very professional yet very personal. She stayed within my budget of $20,000. I would definitely recommend Pure Dwelling to anyone and hope to work with her again.

Mary was great at working with me in the back-and-forth process of developing my vague ideas into specific designs, and then managing all of the work. We completely redid a guest full bath and then a 50-year old master bath. And new basement stairs and flooring. Not to mention exterior and interior painting and more. I really enjoy my new old house.

I've used Sue for micro and macro interior design projects for my historic home that has a lot of modern demands. She's helped me make the most of my small budget to overhaul once-unusable spaces -- and then also been terrific in helping me make the right choices in larger investments for American-made furniture. She's consummately realistic and a genuine pleasure to have as a partner in making your house beautiful and super functional.

We were having a very difficult time trying to pick colors for our newly purchased condo. Built in the early 90's, it was full of "pickled" cabinets and woodwork! The walls were trended toward the salmon color which made the woodwork look PINK!! We called Rooted Interiors and Rachel was WONDERFUL. She brought her entire color sample wheel. With her help we were able to achieve a warm, rich environment in our new place. We love the color she chose for our great room so much that we also used it the the lower level were there was more " pickled" built-ins! It looks great! Her idea for our kitchen was also a winner. The cobbled brown was an excellent choice against the light cabinets, accented by caliente, a deep terracotta color on the window bays! Her ideas helped make our home warm and welcoming! We couldn't have been more pleased with her design and color assistance! She is friendly, helpful and extremely easy to work with. She listens to your thoughts and then expands on them to make everything mesh into a beautiful design. She will be helping us more on our future projects! Thanks, Rooted Interiors for a job well done!

I own a Home Improvement Company and I have hired William frequently in the past 2 years for design work as well as securing new customers for my business. My experience shows me that Bill is very thorough, really has an eye for the details and takes great pride in his work. His customer service skills are outstanding and I will look forward to working with him in the future.

I wish there were more than 5 stars to click on! We hired Jessalyn to remodel our kitchen. Her design plan was one we would have never thought of and one we now couldn’t imagine living without. She reconfigured the whole kitchen and took it from a cramped dark space to a light open one. She paid attention to every detail down to the cabinet knobs. We still can’t believe it’s the same room! Plus she was very conscious of our budget and helped us pick out materials that looked great without breaking the bank. My wife and I couldn’t be happier with the end results and would not hesitate to use Jessalyn for any design project.

Laura did the decorations for my wedding this October. It was beautiful! She even hand made some of the decorations for the event. The style was just what I was looking for (fall rustic). I would definitely recommend her to everyone that is looking for a wedding decorator or any other event planning! Thanks Laura!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do interior designers do?

Interior designers do much more than pick complementary paint colors and choose matching furniture — although those tasks are important parts of the job. Unlike decorators, interior designers usually have an associate of science degree or certificate of achievement in interior design from an accredited program. They’re trained in drafting, lighting and computer aided design (CAD), and are experts in room-specific design and residential space planning. Interior designers use these skills to plan and design safe, highly functional and beautiful interior spaces, from kitchens and bathrooms to family rooms and bedrooms. They determine space requirements, work within building codes and inspection regulations, and meet accessibility standards. An interior designer’s day-to-day job includes creative and technical tasks, both of which often require great communication skills:

  • Creating model rooms and visuals using design software.
  • Researching different textiles, materials, finishes, lighting and furniture.
  • Hiring suppliers, vendors, and contractors.
  • Estimating costs and making bids on potential jobs.

How do you find a good interior designer?

For many homeowners, the difference between a good interior designer and a bad one is simply a matter of taste — but all good designers have similar skill sets. Interior designers usually have a degree or certificate in interior design, with training in design principles and lighting, drafting, and computer aided design (CAD) software. Good interior designers have strong color balancing skills and understand how different colors influence spatial perception and moods. They know the building and electrical codes in the areas where they practice, and they make sure that any contractors they hire also work to those codes. They are knowledgeable about different upholstery fabrics and draperies, stay ahead of residential design trends, and maintain their own individual creativity. Also, good interior designers have excellent space designing skills, so they can arrange a space efficiently and with ideal traffic flow. Ultimately, hiring a good interior designer means pinpointing one whose signature style is complementary to your personal style — so checking out many designers’ portfolios is a must — and whose communication methods match yours.

How do you choose an interior designer?

Choosing an interior designer is all about finding one whose signature style fits well with your tastes and who can work within your budget. To choose the right professional for your interior design project, ask yourself these five questions:

  • What is your signature style? Good interior designers can both describe their personal aesthetic and demonstrate their signature style through their portfolios. Make sure it appeals to you.
  • How will you make sure the design fits my lifestyle? Good designers understand that the interior design must improve a homeowner’s experience in their home and fit into their lifestyle; for example, a white suede sofa is a poor choice for a family with large dogs and small children.
  • How much do you charge? Depending on the project, an interior designer may charge an hourly rate, a flat fee or a percentage of the project’s total cost.
  • How will you stick to my budget? An interior designer should have a plan for staying within your budget, which includes full transparency of costs and flexibility when choosing materials and furnishings.  

Because an interior design project is highly collaborative and based on hard-to-define personal preferences, it’s most important to choose a designer who communicates clearly and listens closely to you.

How much do interior designers charge?

You can hire an interior design for a job as basic as a one-room consultation or as complex as supervising the design of an entire new home, helping with space planning, choosing color palettes, and shopping for furniture, flooring and artwork. The size and scope of the job will determine how much an interior designer charges; the average national cost for an interior designer ranges from $75 to $100 or more per hour. Other cost factors include the person’s reputation — interior designers to the stars are usually more expensive — and region. Most interior designers charge an average of $100-$225 for an initial consultation, but some will charge an hourly rate, usually starting at an average of $50, for larger projects that require extensive consultations. Hourly rates may be available for smaller projects, such as redecorating a living room or staging a home for sale; for instance, shopping and consulting can cost an average of $75 to $100 per hour, while staging costs and average $95 per hour. For many homeowners, a percentage of an interior designer’s cost is recouped through the professional discounts they receive from their vendors.
